I don't really get the point of these "maxi-scooters" like the C1 (with a "roof"). Unless you are just not capable of throwing your leg over a motorcycle, and so you need the pass-through design, then for the same money you can just buy a real motorcycle. You should still wear a helmet with a C1, even with the "roof". If you tip this over, especially if you are belted in, you are going to hit the side of your head on the pavement/ground. So what are you gaining with a C1 over an F650GS for the same money, or a 250-600cc motorcycle for less money?
Don't get me wrong, I have no problem with scooters (we just bought my wife an Aprilia SR50 Factory), but I just don't see the point of a $10,000 scooter.
